MEET THE TEAM
Dr. David M. McGrew
Earning his medical degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa; Dr David M. McGrew is a founding member and past president of the American Academy of Hospice & Palliative Medicine.
Dr. McGrew has been delivering hospice and palliative medical services in the West Central Florida region for 30 years; in one of his prior roles, he oversaw the implementation of a home-based palliative care program that resulted in high patient and family satisfaction as well as a 60% drop in hospitalizations.

J. David Barr PA-C
Over 15 years ago J. David Barr began his journey into Medicine. Losing his father at a very young age David knew from the beginning that he wanted to help maximize patients longevity and improve their quality of life.
After graduating from the University of Findlay, David embarked on his career in Primary Care, ER Medicine and Pain Management. After countless procedures and proven results in alleviating pain and increased mobility without opioids it became clear that David found his calling and RegMed was established.
Founded on one simple principle by going "old school” - back in time, to the days when doctors came to your home; RegenMed is Florida’s First Mobile Pain Management Clinic.
Now more than ever with the threat of Covid-19; RegenMed’s mobile clinic could not be more relevant. Patients never leave the comfort and safety of their home or facility and are still able to receive the treatments they so desperately need.
On a more personal note, David is happily married for the last 18 years and counting, has two beautiful children and loves socializing with family and friends. When he can, he’s participating in local charity events to support various causes in the community.
Graduating from Xavier University with a Marketing and Entrepreneurship degree Kara was destined to be in business from very early on. Designing a product in college that was a wildly successful for over 15 years; then moving into the medical industry along with David was kismet.
Running the day to day operations of RegenMed; Kara is often seen in the background. Her commitment to relationship extends past the facility directors, Doctors and Head Nurses, it flows all the way down to staff members and patients.
But nothing gives Kara more pleasure than visiting some of her favorite patients and getting a great big hug. Feeling like she has an endless supply of grandparents that are thrilled to see her whenever he stops by.
Working with David and growing RegMed has surpassed Kara’s expectations for a fulfilling career. This is only trumped by family outings, shopping trips with her daughter and watching her son gaming.
Rochelle Hastings PA-C
Graduating Barry University with a PA degree; Rochelle has known since she was a teenager that she wanted to be in sports medicine and pain management.
Her passion for taking care of people has made her a fundamental member of RegenMed working in the field daily. She believes our patients are her number one priority and always strives to make them as comfortable as possible.
Her nurturing side doesn’t end with her work; after a long day she looks forward to spending quality time with her family making fancy dinners even on a work night. On her time-off she’s extremely active and loves to watch her kids play soccer and flag football, painting and is an avid animal lover.
